Thrilled with the warm reception they received during UFC Fight Night 66 May of last year, the Ultimate Fighting Championship has just announced that they will be returning to the Philippines for another event on October 15, at the SM Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City.
UFC Fight Night 66 also saw the final match of “The Filipino Wrecking Machine” Mark Muñoz, who picked up a dramatic victory over Luke Barnatt in front of the raucous home crowd.
“We are very excited to be back in the Philippines,” Executive Vice President & General Manager of UFC Asia Kenneth Berger said. “The consistently warm reception we receive from Filipino fans and last year’s sold out event shows us that UFC has an incredibly strong following in the country.”
“Manila is a fighting city and we hope to put on another unforgettable show that will capture the hearts of Filipino sports fans throughout the country,” he added.
